To play background audio (MP3 files) that you have transferred to your Kindle, follow the steps below:

  1. If you are not already on the Home screen, press the “Home” button.
  2. Press the “Menu” button.
  3. Move the 5-way down until “Experimental” is underlined and press the 5-way to select it.
  4. Move the 5-way down until “Play MP3” is underlined and press down to select it.

The songs are played in order, by the date you added them to your Kindle. You can adjust the volume of the music using the volume controls on the right side of your Kindle. You can continue to listen to the audio while reading content; the background audio continues to play unless you open an audio book, turn on text-to-speech, all of the files have been played, or if you stop the playback as indicated below.

To turn off background audio:

  1. If you are not already on the Home screen, press the “Home” button.
  2. Press the “Menu” button.
  3. Move the 5-way down until “Experimental” is underlined. Press the 5-way to select.
  4. Move the 5-way down until “Play MP3” is underlined. Press the 5-way to select.

Tip: You can also play or stop background audio by holding down the ALT key and pressing the space bar. You can forward to the next track by holding down the ALT key and pressing the ‘F’ key.
